In light of the recent post, Confessions of a Lunch Whore...

I was eating at In & Out Burger in LA last week. My friend Dan and I came to the following conclusion: the more successful you become, the more you value every minute of your days.

Not that either of us are big shots or anything. Far from it.

Still, think of it this way.

Let’s say that once a week, you have a meeting, a lunch or coffee with a stranger or potential customer or a lead or who wants to pick your brain or chat or brainstorm ideas or get free advice.

As I mentioned in the other post, unless you think it’s absolutely worth it, be careful not to waste your (and their) time. You are a professional. Your time is valuable and, most importantly, billable. For example:

1 wasted lunch a week
90 minutes a week
6 hours a month
72 hours a year
9 full 8 hour days
2 weeks of work

It adds up, doesn’t it?

LET ME ASK YA THIS...
Is it possible to have too many meetings?

LET ME SUGGEST THIS...
